Yep, it is official, I’m doing it again.
20 Books of Summer is back for another year and this is your call to start planning!
Do you fancy getting 20 books off your TBR in three months? Think of the joys that this challenge brings:
- All that deliberating over what books to choose and how many – 10, 15 or the Full Monty?
- Crazed reading during the warmest months of the year
- Decisions over how you measure your progress – by books read per month? Or pages read by day?
- Panicked reviewing as you try to cram everything in to the time frame
Ah, but you all know it is a lot more fun than that!
It’s pretty common knowledge that I am the slackest challenge host and will bend the rules to help anyone reach their goal.
Want to swap a book? Go for it.
Fancy changing your list half way through? No problem.
Deciding to drop your goal from 20 to 15 (or even 10)? I am fine with that.
I will be using one or two of those tricks to try to read all 20 myself. At the moment I am in the throes of working out my perfect pile of 20 – a sneaky play, some non-fiction, as many novellas as I can get away with – and I’ll be unveiling my final choices next week.
Choosing your list of books is half the fun, as is following along with everyone’s progress on this years new #20booksofsummer21 hashtag.
This year I am kicking off on Tuesday 1 June and finishing on Wednesday 1 September. For the last TWO years I have completed my challenge, reading and reviewing all 20 books, so the pressure is well and truly on.
If you want to join in, just take the Books of Summer image, pick your own 10, 15 or 20 books you would like to read. Come back in a few weeks and you can share your sign up post on the special link up page, so I know that you are taking part.
I’d love your support and do hope some of you will join in the summer reading fun! Who’s in?
I am a 40 something book buying addict trying to reduce the backlog one book at a time!
